Explosion at Santiaguuito this morning
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The New SE crater has remained calm; after the increase yesterday, tremor has descended back to low levels and continues to fluctuate.

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): Relatively strong ash emissions continue. This morning, the plume rose to about 27,000 ft (7 km) altitude, drifting NW.

Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): New explosions occurred this morning. An ash plume rose to 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude this morning and drifted 20 nautical miles to the east (VAAC Darwin).

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): After a relatively calm period, a large vulcanian explosion occurred at the volcano this morning (04:30 GMT). VAAC Darwin reports an ash plume to 38,000 ft (12 km) altitude drifting 50 nautical miles to the NW.
The eruption was preceded by a smaller one at midnight (GMT) with an ash plume altitude of estimated 18,000 ft (5.5 km).
The volcano has been on red alert for 2 weeks and more than 17,000 people remain evacuated (for good reason!).

Santa María / Santiaguito (Guatemala): The observatory reports little changes: an explosion occurred with an ash plume of 900 m height, and avalanches continue to descend from the active block lava flows.

Pacaya (Guatemala): Judging from INSIVUMEH's brief daily report, strombolian activity has decreased as ejecta heights were described as 25 meters (vs 50 m previously).

Fuego (Guatemala): INSIVUMEH reports 7 explosions during the past day with ash plumes up to 700 m height.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): A temporary steep increase in tremor amplitude earlier today (but with no other visual changes) rose some expectations about a new paroxysm, which would be now "due" if Etna kept her rhythm of 5-7 days intervals. However, it turned out to be only a short-lived peak, and it seems we have to wait a bit more. No explosive activity could be identified at the New SE crater. ... [more]

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): Ash emissions have continued at reduced intensity. This morning, the ash plume was about 300 km long drifting to the ENE. ... [more]

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Etna seems not to be heading towards another of its "Saturday evening shows" today. The New SE crater has remained quiet and tremor is low at more or less unchanged levels. ... [more]
Etna this morning with the 2 Dec lava flow against the white snow (Etna Trekking webcam)
Friday, Dec 06, 2013
Etna (Sicily, Italy): No significant news from Etna so far. The brilliant weather shows the fiery lady in all her glory today. The latest lava flow towards Valle del Bove from Monday's paroxysm stands out as a dark black tongue against the white snow. Volcanic tremor has increased a bit, showing that the NSEC remains (mostly internally) agitated. ... [more]
Vulcanian explosion from Sakurajima this morning (Tarumizu webcam)
Thursday, Dec 05, 2013
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The New SE crater remains restless. As the following time-lapse video of the past 24 hours shows, there is occasional weak lava extrusion from effusive vents on the upper flanks, and rarely glow from the summit vent suggesting that the magma column is relatively still high inside the vent and sometimes produces deep-seated strombolian explosions. ...
